    • Abstract


      A probability distribution for the number of conceptions during a specified period of time is derived assuming that the fecundability as well as the proportion of incomplete conceptions vary between conceptions. A procedure for finding the estimate of some of the parameters has been outlined. The probability model was tested with the date from the Varnasi survey.

      Forthcoming Special issue.

    • To trigger further research on plant mitochondria, the Journal of Biosciences is bringing out a special issue titled "Plant Mitochondria: Properties and Interactions with Other Organelles".

      Plant mitochondria are quite distinct and have unique features, such as a cyanide-insensitive alternate pathway. They also interact with chloroplasts to optimize photosynthetic carbon assimilation.

      Submissions are welcome until 30 July 2023. The contributions can be original articles, short communications, reviews, or mini-reviews on any topic related to plant mitochondria.

      Authors can submit their articles online at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jbsc/default2.aspx
